Holes by Louis Sachar

The book is about a boy called Stanley who is blamed for stealing some shoes, when he hasn't actually, and he is taken to camp green lake where he has to dig holes as a punishment every day and then he has to change out of his clothes that he digs holes in into his resting clothes. Zero, one of Stanley's friends loves digging Holes, but he wants Stanley to teach him to write but Stanley is too tired after digging holes to teach him. So because Zero loves digging holes Zero digs part of Stanley's hole while Stanley rests, but one day the people who are in charge of Camp Green Lake find out that Zero is digging part of Stanley's hole and Zero runs...

I like this book because it's different it's not like any other book that I've ever read and I've read lot's of books. I'd recommend this book to eight and upwards.

The Week In Pictures!!!

On Where Pianos Roam

This new weekly segment has got me taking photos everywhere!!  So let's get to it!! This has been a busy week .  .  . Of course last Saturday was Zumba-tastic!!!! On Monday, I went out to Hillsboro Village in downtown Nashville for a quick stroll and to purchase my inexpensive ticket for the Vienna Teng/Ben Sollee show at the Belcourt .  .  . Right in front of the Belcourt, I looked down to the ground, and I happened upon a curious object .  .  .  (Someone got lucky, I suppose.  LOL)  Hhhmm .  .  .  Strange huh? After buying my ticket I went around the corner to visit one of my favorite shops in the city.  It's called Pangaea.  Here's a photo of one of their awesome window displays .  .  . I can never go into this store without finding something I want to buy.  This visit was no different.  I was looking to see if they happened to have a dragon pendant, but they actually had something totally different but just as good that I had never seen anywhere else. I coveted it. I wanted it. Alas!!  Even though I knew I could afford it, I decided not to buy it.  It's probably looking cool around someone else's neck right about now.  I'm on a tight budget these days, and I can't afford unnecessary things.  (Gosh, it was so cute though.) Down the street, I went into one of the coolest used book stores in all of Nashville .  .  .  Book Man/Book Woman .  .  . Here's a photo of the inside .  .  . Here's a photo of the dragon of Hillsboro Village.  Isn't he a beauty? Then on Tuesday night, I went the Vienna Teng concert at the Belcourt Theatre (with cellist Ben Sollee opening). During the intermission, I got to be a big uber dork in all my lameliness when talking to Ben Sollee after his opening set.  Managed to take an awful blurry photo in the process .  .  . Then Vienna took the stage and had a glorious set.  I managed to sit out in front and get a view of her hands dancing on the keys .  .  . Then, I spent some time on Wednesday admiring the swanky new decal that my big sister Leth got me from Las Vegas .  .  . Of course, in my car, I've been listening to this all week .  .  . I do love me some Jason Mraz!! That's all for this week!!  More photos to come!! -gordo
